Social Work Reviews
I have been out of graduate school for 24 years and scared to death to take the LCSW exam. My clinical and supervision hours were complete, yet scared straight to take this exam. I studied off and on for almost 1 year, my son was in a horrible accident and sustained a TBI, and me asking for extension after extension. TDC never questioned my integrity and continued to extend my time with this study program. I felt over prepared as I took the exam. My nerves still almost got the best of me, but I could hear Amanda's voice in my head...'read each question word for word.' Not only was I prepared, I learned a ton....I was in graduate school at the tail end of the DSM III, new theory models, defense mechanisms, and DSM V! This program encompasses everything to be a better clinician. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I would highly recommend using TDC. I felt confident and prepared after using this program and would choose it again if I had to!
I failed, failed, failed, failed, failed, failed the exam before TDC, and failed, failed again after I signed up with TDC. I have been out of school for 16 years, very successful at work and a single mother of two. I spent hundreds of dollars on other study materials and boot camps with tons of information and books but with no concrete guidance and plan. Again in search of additional materials on the internet, TDC's website came up and caught my attention. With the determination to pass, I did not hesitate to sign up, but of course with the thought that it's just another but different program. To my surprise, 'I WAS DEAD WRONG.' TDC broke down the subjects in small, concrete ways with just the information and the technique to tackle the exam. In addition, TDC provides direction, guidance to take care of yourself, your family, and busy work schedule, and still create time to study. The study materials are not boring, you will enjoy and look forward to study time, and in addition will help you learn and understand the materials better in a much simple way. I just wish this program was available in graduate school. Along the process of studying, I made it my business to read all the daily Social Work reviews for motivation. This has helped a lot and I always looked forward to one day to also share a testimony and said to myself, I will have the chance to first write my credential after my name. TDC was there with me all the way 'UNTIL I PASS' and for that, I am very grateful and I feel great relief and gratitude to inform that I passed the exam this morning. Thank you Amanda for this great program.
The program was extremely helpful, well-designed and prepared me very well for the exam. I was so excited to pass on the first try! I appreciated having a study guide and sample study schedule, which helped me to NOT procrastinate! I feel the study material was just the right amount, as well as the mock/final exams. I will be back for the exam prep when it comes time for the clinical exam. Thank you!
TDC worked for me after two previous attempts at this exam! THANK YOU!
I really enjoyed the materials. Straight to the point, good insight, and teaches elimination process.
The topics covered in this course really prepared me for the actual test. I passed on my first try.
Thank you so much to the Therapist Development Center. I want to express my appreciation for all the support that I have received through this program. I can testify on my own behalf that this program will be with you to the end until passing the LCSW exam. It has been a long time trying to pass the exam due to a learning disability, but the dedication that Amanda and her team takes in explaining how to develop strategies is excellent in understanding the material. I feel liberated passing this exam.
After failing by 1 point, I was discouraged and frustrated. I decided to give it one more shot exactly 5 months later and I’m glad I did as I passed and with a higher score than needed. I focused on strategies and using Amanda’s thinking/rationales rather than content.
The TDC materials helped me build my confidence, and although I was nervous when I went to take the test, I felt prepared.
I am filled with happiness and excitement as I write this, one hour post exam. I had made several attempts to pass the LCSW exam in the past several years with no success. I was ready to give up. I finally came upon your program and I can say that the program is the reason why I passed. I was prepared with every scenario, definitions, and helpful tips. Lots of studying, yes, but well worth it. I finally passed. Thank you so much for all you support and motivation. I did not take this exam alone you were with me the whole time!! When I confronted a tough question I thought how would Amanda answer this. Thank you so much!!!!!!
I took the LMSW exam on 3/17/17 and passed!! I am so very thankful for TDC!
TDC provided a person-centered, relaxed approach to studying for an exam I had unknown underlying anxiety over. Not knowing how much I actually DIDN'T KNOW, this program made me feel I learned without being stressed to memorize and crash-study. As someone who is an avid studier, who stresses over tests, and who obsessively researches the best programs and methods of studying for different tests, this one surpassed my expectations and helped me loosen my stressful reigns. I passed after one try! Thank you!
I had really bad test anxiety to the point I was shaking when I walked into the exam room. The program was helpful in my passing because I could hear Amanda reading the questions to me and processing the answer choices. I plan on using it with my clinical portion as well.
I passed the CA Law & Ethics on the first attempt. I'm thankful to TDC for their great program and on-going support during this process. Thanks a lot!
Thank you so much for your help with the LCSW exam. It gave me more confidence going in to sit which I think was a key factor in my success. It gave me the content knowledge and practice with test taking that made me feel prepared. Thank you for putting this together!!!
I used your study material and found it digestible, helpful, and straightforward. I felt confident, calm and ready to take the exam. And was expecting to pass after having taken your course. THANK YOU!!!
TDC is one of the best investments I ever made in my life. I had unsuccessfully prepared for the test with other places and failed the test three times. I reached a point in January where I was demotivated and I felt I could not find a program that would truly help me to prepare for this exam. A friend of mine recommended TDC. I followed their process and incredible support. Bethany very consistently answered all my questions and concerns on a regular basis. I just took the test today and passed. It took me three months to study with TDC and I was well prepared. I felt confident and indeed all the questions of the test were covered by TDC. The other programs were at times wrong or confused me more than anything else. TDC is clear and right to the point. I wish I had not wasted my time with the other programs. I hope at least that my experience will help other candidates. Good luck.
Therapist Development Center is absolutely incredible. This study system was all I needed to pass my Master's exam on my first try (I'm an awful test taker by the way). I only needed to answer 95 questions correctly and passed with 140 correct questions! While I was taking the test, I could hear Amanda's voice guiding me through each question. I was confident going into the test and it's all because of the quick studies, mock exams, and other TDC materials. I recommend this program to EVERYONE!
I PASSED! I'm so glad that I chose TDC to help me pass the LCSW Law and Ethics Exam. It is an excellent study program! It helped me get organized and more confident in taking the test. Thank you Amanda and the TDC staff for giving me the motivation and experience to achieve my goals!
